Orca launches a completely renewed version of its Sonar neoprene, ideal for swimmers looking for the perfect harmony between buoyancy and flexibility.
The new Orca Sonar arrives as one of the most versatile wetsuits in the Orca range. In previous editions, especially in the last one, the Sonar became the top sales neoprene of the brand due to the wide range of swimmers that it encompassed.
Now the new version offers great technical advances in the sector
It is designed with Yamamoto’s Aerodome 2, applied to the lower trunk and upper leg area. This technology consists of hundreds of small air cavities that provide 30% more buoyancy.
The composition of this technology and a neoprene 39cell of 5mm of thickness in the model of man, gets a plus of buoyancy, which helps to achieve an efficient position in the water. For its part, in the women’s model, panels of 4mm and 3mm have been used, which take into account the shape and innate buoyancy of women.
Orca complements the buoyancy with greater flexibility in the shoulders and arms, using the elastic material of Yamamoto with 1.5 mm thick neoprene 39cell, for a swimming without restrictions. The combination of this material together with the Infinityskin lining favors the sensation of freedom in the water. In addition, to further improve flexibility in arms and shoulders, Orca uses a single panel, in order to reduce the number of seams and improve the elasticity of the product, making it an elite neoprene in flexibility.
The suit also stands out for its side panels Core Lateral Stabilizer (CLS). This feature keeps the core stable and prevents the body from snaking, maintaining a stable and efficient position for longer. To offer greater comfort, a laser cut has been made on the 39mm 2mm neoprene, located in the neck area, which reduces friction while swimming. Also, all neoprene is treated with the SCS (Super Composite Skin) technology, a coating that reduces friction in water.
In addition, with the new model, the transition time is reduced, thanks to the 2mm 2mm neoprene placed on the upper part of the ankles. These panels of zero absorption, not only seal well, but are composed of a very elastic material, to reduce the time in T1.
Ultimately all these technologies combine to create a neoprene faster, flexible and floatable, easy to remove and at a reasonable price.
